By Emma Rausch
 
O.J. Neighbours Elementary School may soon have access to a mobile classroom to help ease its increased student population.
 
In a unanimous vote, Wabash City Schools Board approved a recommendation Monday, Feb. 6, to seek a variance of the elementary facility’s zoning plan through the Board of Zoning Appeals to include a mobile classroom’s placement. The BZA will hear the request when it meets on Feb. 15.
 
“I wouldn’t say we’re struggling, but we continue to have some space concerns, especially this past year when we increased the number of students at O.J. Neighbours,” Superintendent Jason Callahan said, “and so we’ve been talking about how to alleviate that and one of the ideas was to get a couple of mobile classrooms (as) mobile classrooms can be a temporary solution.”
